With my limited knowledge of bass fishing, I just started as well, I started last year. What I would use your set ups for are as follows:

1. This could be your flipping rod, its too heavy and fast for cranks

2. Worm and jigs

3. This is your crankbait rod

4. Light T-rigs, or anything too light to throw on casting gear.

That is what I would do with those setups. You will probably get more detailed answers from other more experienced fishers. Hope I helped you out!

You may not need to go as heavy as 16lb fluoro for your first setup but if it's catching you fish it should be fine.  I'd go 10lb or 12lb.  Also you might not want such a fast taper for your crankbait fishing.  I just got the 7' Shimano Compre cranking rod and a shimano curado 5:1.1 gear ratio for another cranking setup.  For #2, you may possibly want a longer rod for flipping, I just got a 7'6 G Loomis IMX the other day, but if that daiwa is stout it should be fine as well.  I think everything you've got down should work, take notes and let the fish tell you if you need to change up some of your gear as well.  Good luck!

I couldn't have said it better. Given the rigs at hand, I would have given an almost identical answer. 8-)

Incidentally, if you needed to have a non-spinning rig drop shot, the cherrywood will function as a decent drop shot rod.
